Welcome to the blog of the Contemplative Outreach Annual Conference and Enrichment Weekend, September 24th-28th, 2008, in Pittsburgh, PA, USA. The theme of the conference is "Unity: Oneness in Contemplation," and it features Fr. Thomas Keating, OCSO and Fr. Laurence Freeman, OSB of The World Community of Christian Meditation (WCCM).

Guest bloggers at the conference will share session updates, perspectives and reflections to provide you with a window on the proceedings and a form of "participation" even though you may not be present. It is hoped this outward extension of the conference can serve to further support our common vision and community.

Words and images (photos, videos) will be posted daily. The contemplative communities of Contemplative Outreach and WCCM are invited to visit here throughout the five days of the conference, read the latest posts and share your comments, conversation and community.

Video Welcome

Brilliant idea! Many thanks for creating the opportunity for others to share in the reflections of the conference. It is great that I can do so from my desk in England!

Many thanks

Someone deleted several links from upnito and filefactory ...

From now, we will use as our main [url=]url shortener[/url], so every url will be there and visible for everyone.

You can pick out from several great [url=]short url[/url] names like: and many others.

They maintain over 60 other ready domains and the [url=]url shortener[/url] service work properly for free without any registration needed.

So we think it is good idea and suggest you to use [url=]url redirect[/url] service too!

Thank you.

I'm new around here, seems like a cool place though. I'll be around a bit, more of a lurker than a poster though :)
